Eidos jumps on the Steam bandwagon

Following the lead of Activision, BioWare and pretty much every other notable company in PC gaming, Eidos has decided to provide a number of its biggest titles through Valve's Steam.

Recent releases Just Cause and Battlestations Midway are up for download on the service, along with games in the Hitman, Tomb Raider and Commandoes series. This year's new releases are also planned to appear in Steam-form.

"For over 10 years, Eidos has been a leading publisher on every major gaming platform," said Valve boss Gabe Newell. "Offering legendary action franchises in complete sets and working with Eidos to deliver new releases is a great step forward in our efforts to expand Steam's offerings, and to do so in ways that provide highest value to customers."

You can grab the titles from Steam now and also nab a 10 percent discount on Eidos titles until March 26, which is nice.
